The export list is not exclusionary. It does not affect what may or may not be placed through surplus lines insurers. It is a procedural tool. For those items on the list, some of the procedures for surplus lines placements are eliminated — simplifying the process. If a coverage or class is included on this list, the diligent search of admitted insurers is not required. If a coverage or class is not included on the list, the normal diligent search will still be necessary.
It is not the role of the export list to include every possible surplus lines exposure. Its role is to list the obvious coverages and classes that in almost every case will only be written by a surplus lines company. If a coverage or exposure is not on the list, it may still be written through surplus lines if the procedures included in Rule R590-171 are followed.
